Blue Box OpenStack Lands on IBM Softlayer Servers

IBM’s Softlayer historically was not an OpenStack based service, rather it was based largely on the rival CloudStack platform, but that is changing. Jesse Proudman, CTO of Blue Box, an IBM company, told ServerWatch that Blue Box is the second official IBM OpenStack deployment on SoftLayer. He explained that IBM has a product called ICOS that provided a similar hosted private cloud offering to Blue Box.
